Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel held his pre-match press conference and he provided team news and injury update which included the latest on the fitness of Andreas Christensen, Kai Havertz and N’Golo Kante.
Thomas Tuchel was pleased to confirm that Christensen is fit and will travel to Villa Park this weekend.
The centre-back has been struggling due to a thigh injury but has returned to full training this week and is in contention to face Villa.
Thomas Tuchel also had a positive update on Havertz as the attacker has been given the all-clear to resume full training on Saturday.
Havertz However missed the win over Leicester City on Tuesday night due to a muscle issue but has made a quick recovery and could now feature on Sunday.
However, it remains to be seen whether Kante will be available for selection this weekend after being forced off with a hamstring issue during the 2-1 victory over Leicester in their last meeting.
Kante is sadly set to miss the trip to Villa park this weekend but Tuchel hopes Kante will be able to resume training on Monday at the latest and be available for the upcoming Champions League final.
Tuchel told Chelseafc.com:
‘Andreas Christensen will be in the squad. He did full training today and also yesterday without any problems so he will be back.
‘Kai Havertz did a test today and will be in team training tomorrow.
‘With N’Golo, it’s going to be very close but still some hopes that he maybe joins team training tomorrow. If not, then he will join on Monday.’
